i was in organized choirs for 13 of my formative years (even though my family swears they didn't know about 4 of them). i love singing. i love hearing voices blend and harmonies weave around melodies.
i play guitar and have written bunches of songs and even recorded a cd, but i know i am not a soloist. never have been and don't want to be now. i am a choral singer.
i love singing alto. most of the time, i don't have my mom's gift of being able to pick out a harmony just from hearing the melody. as with most things, i have to work hard before i become ok at it. but i really enjoy nailing the harmony once i have learned it.
we are doing a very small choral number at church on sunday, and we had a rehearsal last night. i had a ridiculous amount of fun, and it made me miss being in choir badly. i don't know if i miss it badly enough to throw on a fuschia dress and character shoes again, but...
my name is holly, and i love choir.
